i think you need to create a parameterized query. have a look at the article below:
http://www.asp.net/Learn/data-access/tutorial-48-vb.aspx
i suggest you can have a hidden field that will hold the cell value and provide this hidden field as a control to your parameterized query.. have a look at the article and it will make sense to you.

You can do it in several way, but I recommend to use TemplateField which you have free control of what happens to your gridview and how you want to bind/display it.

<asp:GridView ..>
..
<asp:TemplateField HeaderText="Name">
                <ItemTemplate>
                       <asp:DropDownList ID="ddlName" runat="server" />
                </ItemTemplate>
 </asp:TemplateField>
</asp:GridView>

The next the step is: in your code behind, you populate this Dropdownlist upon the ID, the best place to do that is in RowDataBound. Look at the code

hope this gives you the idea

  protected void dgUserPasswords_ItemDataBound(object sender, DataGridItemEventArgs e)
{
	// Check if the current row contains items; if it's a header or footer row that will throw an error
	if (e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.Item || e.Item.ItemType == ListItemType.AlternatingItem)
	{
		//get the ID
		string id = DataBinder.Eval(e.Item.DataItem, "ID").ToString();
		
		//find the current dropdown list:
		DropDownList ddlName = e.Item.FindControl("ddlName");
		
		//NOW you have the current ID and the dropdownlist -> populate the dllName dropdownlist 
		PopulateDropDownListNameByID(id, ddlName);
	}
}
 
private void PopulateDropDownListNameByID(string ID, DropDownList ddlname)
{
    //query and populate ddlName
}

the best and the easiest of methods for doing an update will be by using the datakeynames property for the gridview
set you id as the datakeyname for your gridview and have a look at the following code sample

this sample code i have taken from the following link
http://asp.dotnetheaven.com/aspnet/doc/ctrlref/data/sqldatasource.aspx from C# GridView Updating section in it

hope it helps - ragi
